Re your reply to my message.
Samuel Philpott was married to Mary Jane Fairbairn who was a sister of my grandfather William - both being children of George Fairbairn & Sarah Scholes.
William married Fanny Garrard in Alstonville NSW and their daughter was my mother.
Alstonville is a lovely little town between Lismore and Ballina on the coast. My sister and I with my mother visited my grandma (Fanny) there, sometimes in school holidays. In those days (1945-50)it was a small town. However I took my mother back there for a visit in 1984 and it had grown a great deal with a large population of retirees.
My mother once told me the story of Mary Philpott who lived just down the street from where my mother lived with her parents in Alstonville but it seems that the two families had a falling out and never spoke again. My g/father William was a builder in the area and I got the impression that they may have been in partnership - but I could be wrong.
George's parents were Walter & Elanor Fairbairn from Cavan and Sara's parents were William & Elizabeth Scholes of Monaghan in N Ireland.
That is as far as I have progressed with research so far. Hope to do more in future.
